In my hotel room with my #artjournal and a bunch of markers. Add a bit of creativity and it’s enough to make magic! 🙌 #quotestoliveby #dotherightthing #mlkjr #brushlettering #artjournaleveryday #jbletters

Had so much fun on the set of @makeitartsytv today with May Flaum @craftwithmay painting galaxies and cutting stuff up. Then @cherylboglioli blew me away with her gorgeous — and shockingly easy — sculptures. Season 4 of #makeitartsytv is going to be amazing, you guys!!! 🎉 You can catch season 3 right now on your local PBS Create channel (airs Fridays at 11:30am and 5:30pm) or online at makeitartsy.com!

In my hotel room mucking around in my #artjournal. One of the things I love about #artjournaling is that it’s an easy art form to take with you wherever you go. Tonight I’m working with markers and pens on top of a painted surface. 🙌 #artjournaleveryday #interestingface #whatjuliemade #julielikeseyes

Stitched my way to #Cleveland while listening to podcasts. The time just flew by. ✈️ If you haven’t yet listened to the #TEDradiohour podcast about the power of art, it’s worth an hour of your time! #embroidery #embroideryart #whatjuliemade #stitching #julielikeseyes

Today is the day! 🤞 Playing with stencils in my #artjournal. If you’re super eagle eyed, you’ll spy two new #balzerdesigns stencils mixed in with the rest! 🙊😘 #tcwstencillove #whatjuliemade #artjournaleveryday #julielikeseyes

I leave tomorrow to film the new season of @makeitartsytv and therefore I am working hard to finish all the samples for my segments. This #watercolor painting is a simple technique I came up with that allows anyone — no need to be able to draw — to create a painting from a photograph. 🙌 You can catch the previous seasons of #makeitartsytv on #PBS and @createtvchannel — it’s on #createtv every Friday! You can also watch online for free (link in my bio). #whatjuliemade #watercolorpainting #inspiredbyart

Working on a small abstract painting inspired by nature. 🍂 But...even though it’s meant to be abstract, I see the beginnings of a figure. Do you see it too? #wip #abstractpainting #whatjuliemade

The best part about leaving a project to dry overnight is waking up in the morning to find it done! 🙌🍁 This is sun printed fabric and I loooooooove it! 😍❤️🎉 Can’t stop feeling the fabric, as if the leaves will come off...is that weird? 😬😜 #whatjuliemade #sunprint #surfacedesign #grafixartsplastics #makeitartsytv #leaves

Despite the cold temperatures, the color palette around here is HOT! 🔥 Just did my first #pouredpainting and I’m in love with the technique! It’s fun & easy!! Going to be showing you the how-to on the upcoming season of @makeitartsytv (we film the new season next week!) #makeitartsytv #goldenpaints #whatjuliemade #acrylicpaint

I worked on two faces today. Both from the same reference photo, but with very different feelings. 👯 #workinginaseries #acryliconpaper #mixedmedia #painting #whatjuliemade

Things were a little slow towards the end of #QuiltFestival yesterday. So, I had the time to doodle a little design (on the left). I scanned it into the #ScanNCut, resized it, cut it out of heat transfer #foil vinyl, and ironed it onto a #totebag. I ❤️ the way it turned out! 🙌 #shiny #htv #iqf #scanncut2 #brandambassador

This morning I literally used up my entire phone battery taking photos of amazing quilts here at #QuiltFestival in #Houston. I was particularly blown away by the display of #quilts by #DannyAmazonas. So Amazing! So inspiring! They make me want to go home and make things. 🙌🎉 Swipe left to see a small sampling of his staggeringly cool #artquilts! He is a master of illusion and color! #iqf #quiltfestival2017 #julielovesart P.S. See more of his work in my Instagram stories (click on my profile photo).

Detail of a quilt by Barbara LaBrake. I *hate* mornings. But I am working in a booth at #QuiltFestival all day long. So, every morning I get up two hours early so that I can sneak into the quilt show and actually see the amazing quilts. This morning I only managed to see three aisles in 90 minutes. And this quilt is part of the problem. I was absolutely gobsmacked by the exhibit of #VanGogh inspired quilts. Each participant created a small quilt using the same fabrics, but any technique, and all inspired by VanGogh’s work. They were amazing and overwhelming and impressive. Swipe left for a taste of the awesomeness! 🙌 #inspired #quilt #quilting #artquilts #julielovesart #iqf

Detail of a much larger painting. Sometimes I wish the little bits were the whole painting! 🙌 I guess that means it’s time to get the scissors! ✂️
